On the CCE-Tompkins website, you will find a page with general information on 
the Emerald Ash Borer (here: 
 which includes several links on 'Management' including a link to The New York 
Invasive Species Clearinghouse, Cornell Cooperative Extension Invasive Species 
Program.  Their website offers a variety of detailed fact sheets on pesticides 
used to control EAB, and some discuss potential side effects.  See: 

I hope this is helpful to you.  Best regards,

Subject: Advice on Emerald Ash Borer please.

We are seeking advice on treatment of EAB for an old, very large Ash tree in 
our South Hill, City of Ithaca yard.

We've been advised to have a local tree company apply Basl Bark Spray on lowest 
four feet of Ash tree.  The  name of the pesticide is Salwi 2056 Diactefuran.

Previously we had injections done in the tree as a preventive.

We see no signs of EAB.

The local tree company recommends the spray be applied this week.

If not done immediately they said it should be done in Spring.

We welcome advice re this spray and/or this spray technique.

What do you think about this compound?


What do you think about  this spray technique in lieu of the injections?

If you recommend the spray, what is the last effective date for spraying this 

Is there someone else you suggest we check in with on this spray technique 
and/or this pesticide?

Any additional advice much appreciated.

Thanks so much.


Marjorie and Bryan
